Many have had H1N1 flu, many have had a shot -- and many remain vulnerable

An estimated 18% of Americans have fallen ill with H1N1 flu, but about 20% have been vaccinated against the strain, according to new estimates released today by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new numbers show that most of the U.S. population remains susceptible to falling ill with H1N1, also known as the swine flu.

“Now that there is ample supply of vaccine, efforts should continue to improve vaccination coverage among persons in initial target groups, as well as to offer vaccination to the rest of the U.S. population,” the CDC said in an early release publication of its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
